Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting from Jamaica.
Though something we generally don't recommend, a complete treatment holiday, such as yours, is rarely associated with the development of drug resistance. In part, this is because you've stopped all of your medications at the same time and because you had an undetectable viral load at the time of discontinuation.
Be well, BY
